As expected, the Supreme Court has announced that it will hand down its opinion tomorrow in Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum), no. S166350. Tomorrow is the ninetieth day following resubmission on January 13, 2012.
When posted tomorrow morning at approximately 10:00 a.m., the opinion should be available at this link:
- Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum), ___ Cal.4th ___ (Apr. 12, 2012)
I will try to cover the opinion here in the morning (although I expect to be just a little busy).
At least two MCLE programs on Brinker have already been announced.
On Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at noon-1:00 p.m., the Labor and Employment Law Section of the State Bar of California will present a webinar entitled "Letters from the Brink: Life in California after Brinker."
